The National Park Foundation the official charity of America’s national parks. Funds contributed to the Foundation are invested directly into the national parks of the United States.
In support of the National Park Service’s core values [internal link] and commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (see Director’s Order 16B), the VIP program seeks to actively engage the many communities, identities, races, ethnicities, backgrounds, abilities, cultures, and beliefs of the American people, with particular emphasis on historically excluded communities. The VIP program seeks new and innovative ways to diversify our volunteer base, to create inclusive work environments and service experiences [internal link], and to eliminate barriers to inclusion for all our volunteers. The VIP Program recognizes that the full potential of volunteerism in national parks cannot be achieved unless we welcome and embrace the full spectrum of an increasingly diverse and multi-cultural American public.
Please inquire about volunteering by contacting the Partnerships, Volunteer and Youth Programs division of National Capital Parks - East by email: NACE_Volunteers@nps.gov, by phone: (202) 437-7518, or our Volunteer Interest Form.
